Inspirational Sailing Adventures aboard the Amelie Rose
We have been providing low-carbon adventure holidays aboard the Amelie Rose since 2009, sailing all over the English Channel from the Solent to Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly, and across to the Channel Islands and Brittany.
Our focus has been on offering exciting, safe, inspirational sailing adventures to everyone – regardless of age, race, religion, disability, sexuality or gender/gender expression enabling folks to enjoy living within nature, harnessing her power, and bringing them closer to the elements and their crewmates as a result.
As we are now looking to move on to new challenges, we are looking for new owners to continue our mission and to enjoy owning this incredible vessel.
Just to say a very big thank-you for our fantastic day on the Amelie Rose. We really enjoyed ourselves, and you even managed perfect sailing weather for the boys. Hopefully we will be able to organise another trip.

Don’t panic! No actual otters get harmed in the making of this dish – in fact it’s vegan friendly unless you decide to use beef dripping instead of healthy (!) olive or rapeseed oil. What it does include is lots or earthy goodness and mouth-watering flavours whether it’s served as a main, a side-dish or a thick hearty soup.
In the previous article we had a look at parking up when the touchdown zone was a nice long stretch of pontoon, but what about when it’s a wall, piles or even (shudder) a finger berth? As our series on boat handling under engine comes to an end, Skipper Nic looks at a few of the more, esoteric, landings we might be required to perform.
